Woman Facing Life in Prison Kills Herself in Front of Walmart
A Texas woman shot and killed herself in front of a Walmart on Wednesday just hours before she was slated to be sentenced for embezzling $1.2 million.
Paige Moody Bisher, 43, of Spring, Texas, was facing up to life in prison after admitting to stealing $1.2 million from a small Houston company, where she was employed as a part-time administrative assistant, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The Harris County Institute of Forensic Science said Bisher shot herself in the chest in the parking lot of a Walmart in Humble, Texas. The medical examiner ruled her death a suicide.
Bisher admitted to embezzling the money in January and was slated to be sentenced by District Judge Nikita Harmon on Wednesday. Prosecutor Lester Blizzard said he was “planning on asking for a lengthy prison sentence for the first-degree felony theft of more than $300,000,” the Houston Chronicle reported.
